I love peach tea and always have. Something about it just screams summer to me so as soon as the weather started turning warm I decided to pull this one out and try it. This is another very mild white blend from Adagio. I’m not really impressed with the peach flavoring they’ve used, but it certainly isn’t the worst I’ve come across, and I tend to be incredibly picky about peach flavoring specifically. This tea is naturally very sweet and while hot the peach flavor is pretty strong so I'm not sure I would recommend adding sugar to it. As it cools it mellows out a bit and the peach isn’t as overwhelming. It’s still pretty artificial tasting, but not overwhelmingly so.
I did resteep this, I started out at 4 minutes for the initial steep and 5 minutes for the resteep. It managed to give me a pretty solid flavor the second time around, but it had noticeably less peach.
What I would like to do with the last of my sample pack is make iced tea, although I'm not sure I have enough left since my pitcher is so large. I'm pretty sure this is where the tea will shine and I'm a sucker for iced peach tea on a hot summer day.
Would I order this again? Possibly in a sample size, just for something different on occasion.
